McManaman Commits Horror Tackle Against Newcastle

Wigan Athletic staged a late comeback against Newcastle United Sunday, but the 2-1 victory was marred by a horror tackle committed by Callum McManaman on Newcastle United’s Massadio Haidara.

Unbelievably, McManaman was not cautioned for the lunge on Haidara in the first half at the DW Stadium. When McManaman and his teammates walked off the pitch at the end of the first half, Newcastle United assistant manager John Carver reacted angrily and got red carded after a scuffle near the player’s tunnel where he got into a pushing match with Wigan coach Graham Barrow.

Referee Mark Halsey didn’t even award a free kick for the foul by McManaman. The footballer will most probably receive a lengthy ban from the Football Association after they’ve had a chance to review the incident in more detail.

Wigan Athletic’s Callum McManaman has had one of those weeks. Just eight days ago, he was a key player in Wigan’s surprise three-nil victory against Everton in the FA Cup. And now this from a distant relative of ESPN TV commentator Steve McManaman.

It was a sickening foul by McManaman. And I don’t blame John Carver one bit for his anger. There’s no place in this game for fouls of this kind.
